How To Downsize & Create Your Dream Room With Thrift Store Finds

A Stroll Thru Life
I am not sure why this post has been viewed so much lately, but thought maybe I should re-run it since people are finding it somewhere.  This is from a couple years ago, but so relevant still.  If you are trying to downsize or just lighten up, here are a few tips that might help you.
